Describe in Detail

Explain the concept of stratification in stratified simple Random sampling. What is proportional and optimum allocation in stratified simple Random sampling? With usual notations show that: V ( y̅st ) opt < V ( y̅st ) prop < V ( y̅ ) ran

Explanation

Stratification:

Stratification means division into layers, classes or categories. Past or some other information related to the character under study may be used to divide the population into various groups. Then simple random sampling or systematic sampling is applied within each stratum.

The strata should be mutually exclusive and exhaustive:… (1286 more words) …

What is cluster sampling? In the case of cluster sampling for proportions, obtain an unbiased

Estimator of population proportion. Also, compute variance of your estimator.

Explanation

Cluster sampling:

Cluster sampling is a type of sampling method. In this method, the population is divided into separate groups, called clusters. Then, a simple random sample of clusters is selected from the population. Then analysis is done on the data from the obtained sampled clusters.

The samplings lead to… (394 more words) …

Describe in Detail

Let for a stratified random sampling ni=WiSiµ0ci where µ0 is constant, ci is the-cost per unit-in ith stratum, Wi=NiN ,Si2 is the mean square based on Ni units.

Estimate the sample sizen under optimum allocation for fixed cost c0 .

Explanation

Under optimum allocation, nis are obtained such that

(i) minimize the variance of the estimate for (a) fixed sample size n;

(i) var ( y̅st)is minimum for fixed n

(ii) var ( y̅st)is minimum for fixed total… (484 more words) …

Explain aligned sample and unaligned systematic sampling method

Explanation

Systematic sampling in two dimensions:

The linear systematic sampling can be extended for two dimensions populations. here it is assumed that the n m k l population units are arranged in the form of ml rows, each containing nk units and a systematic sampling of m n units is selected.… (228 more words) …

Describe in Detail

Explain the concepts of linear and circular systematic sampling giving suitable illustrations.

Further, show that for linear systematic sampling, sample mean is an unbiased estimator for population mean.

Explanation

Let us suppose that N sampling units are serially numbered from 1 to N in some order and a sample of size n is to be drawn in such a way that N is expressible as a product of two integers n and k.

N = nk → k =… (548 more words) …
